of cool. i never seen that before! hello, america! tonight we have a special "time to be heard." the idea of this program came when i was speaking to my friend charles payne. he was on my show. when did you tell me the story about the briefcase? >> about a month and a half ago. glenn: he cried like a baby on my show. that's my gig, man! i asked charles to take me to where he grew up in new york. he showed me a neighborhood in harlem where he used to live, the neighborhood where other african-american kids used to beat him up for talking white, or wanting a briefcase because he always wanted to be a businessman or wearing nice clothes. charles shared his story with me and i want to show you a little bit of it. >> this is different than what it was when you were growing up? >> oh absolutely. just trees, grass, some of the beautification stuff they're doing right now. this was an an empty lot for at least a decade, and we used to throw rocks all the time. glenn: you said this is really what it felt like when you lived here trvetion more like this? >> yeah, you had these kinds of buildings, t
. america's economy was built on free market enterprise. it was built on these principles that allowed the private sector to grow and thrive and prosper and for our families to keep more of what we earn. where we are now in america in the last 11 months is seeing this reversal of those principles that were applied to build up our economy. all of a sudden we are thinking it is okay to grow debt in our country. it is okay to borrow from countries we will soon be so beholding to. it is okay to print money out of thin air and think everything is going to magically work out. fundamentally, everyone is equal in america, everyone has equal opportunity to earn, produce and build. the fundamentals of a strong economy have got to be applied again as they were like i said in the 80s when reagan faced a worse recession than today let's learn from that piece of american history and apply the same solutions. >> what about health care reform? i assume you want some health care reform, maybe i'm wrong. do we need health care reform? >> of course we do. rising costs are crushing some of our small busin
as america's capital of antisemitism. jews were discriminated for everything, houses, public accommodation, even service clubs and automobile clubs. the rest of america was not much better. that is one of the reasons why a record of america with an administration beloved by jews raised only a feeble voice against the holocaust. that was then. now, of course, the twin cities are among the most enlightened communities of america, the place where they have had several jewish senators, several black officials, a flourishing of the community. it has transformed itself as america has been transformed. and i want to ask the question, what happened? how did that happen? we do not have time to get into many of the reasons but the most significant was the powerful tide of the civil rights revolution. it simply knocked down a closed society of my youth, knocking down the walls of the segregation and discrimination, opening the doors of equal opportunity to blacks and jews and all but -- and ultimately to women and to gaze and to people with disabilities. martin luther king jr. was not the first or on
as america's capital of anti- semitism. jews were discriminated against in everything, housing, jobs, education, public examination, it even service clubs and automobile clubs. you can imagine how blacks were treated in that society. that is one of the reasons that the record of america, with an administration beloved by youths, raised only a feeble voice against the holocaust. that was then. now, of course, the twin cities are among the most dynamic cities in america, a place where they have jewish said as -- jewish senators, and dozens of black [unintelligible] i just want to ask the question what happened? how did that happen? lots of things. the most significant for me was the powerful ties of the civil rights revolution which knocked down the closed society of my youth, knocking down the walls of segregation and discrimination, smashing quotas and apartheid, opening the doors of equal opportunity to blacks and jews and, ultimately, to women, two days, and to persons of disabilities. -- to dagays, and to persons of disabilities. the and before him had the moral clout that martin

and is far less so now, as there are so many people in the muslim world that are mad at america. very few muslims hate americans for being americans. in terms of airports, the watch word is not a silver bullet. if anything, this gentleman in detroit was a rank amateur. had he been a professional, it would not have the nabobs of job. for americans to somehow think that we have a great system to protect them, i think that is wrong. i think sometimes i wonder why we spend so much attention on the aircraft and system when we have 3000 or 4,000 miles of open sea borders. host: going back to your comment from a moment ago about the u.s. killing al qaeda one of the time, what should we do, does that mean a bigger military presence in places like yemen? guest: we are at the drawing board. we have not progressed since 9/11. we are fighting an enemy that basically does not exist. the american people, for the last four presidents, continued to tell americans that we are fighting an enemy that is motivated by hatred for freedom and our liberties. women in the workplace. liquor after the work day. the

's the big deal there? black men right now in corporate america, there are black men in buildings, media companies, all over the place, where you don't want to be called the angry black man. they changed how they walk, what they wear, they cut their beards. they look certain ways because they know people are going to make a decision based upon how they look and how they sound. if we never, ever talk about this stuff, then we don't realize it exists. so as a black man, look, i'm very sensitive if somebody says, roland, you're an angry guy. i know exactly what that means to somebody else's ears. that could have a negative impact on me in the future. we never talk about it, we never learn from it. >> we're going to have more in a moment. >>> let us know what you think about this debate. join the live chat at ac360.com. about to log on. >>> much more ahead about politics and race and why some are saying harry reid was speaking the truth, as we heard about an ugly reality that studies show even young kids pick up on. i want to show you little bit of something we're going to show you more afte

. what is our policy currently in latin america and how different is it from the bush administration? >> we really don't have a policy to latin america. that is not a fault of the obama administration. the euna states needs universal bilateral policies in certain regions. there are many long past policies for the night states -- the united states need to direct -- differentiate among different countries in the hemisphere. we have different priorities now. we are slow in washington on the hill and in the white house to come to that understanding. host: what is the political landscape in latin america? how has the landscape changed politically down there? guest: there is a much more diverse ideological group of countries such as venezuela and ecuador and bolivia which are not very friendly to the united states or to the market economy. on the other hand, we have a prpragmatic president likelula in central america. we have the problem of cuba and we have a terrible problem with haiti. host: on the issue of haiti, there is an article about a question of commitment and can the united stat
